Life is a beautiful mess. How do you struggle through it well, especially when insecurity, disappointment, or grief takes over? This week, Jimmy sits down with Caleb and Will Chapman of Colony House who share their own stories of struggle and transformation. From losing their little sister to losing a record deal, they witness to the power of hope and the inspiration behind their brand new album Leave What's Lost Behind (which releases everywhere this Friday!). Go preorder their new album and catch them on tour this winter at http://www.colonyhousemusic.com.

Where do you place your worth? Is your identity wrapped up in failure or success, in what others think, or self-imposed pressure? Today’s episode with Dr. Ryan Hanning is a wonderful reminder that you’re not a human doing but a human being. You have inherent dignity and worth. In a culture dominated by ideals of efficiency, pleasure, and pragmatism, you must remember that the art of being human is less about what you do and more about who you are. Invite Ryan to speak on this topic at an upcoming event by visiting http://ryanhanning.com. Then engage in some true leisure by following Love Good's recently updated Spotify playlists at http://lovegoodculture.com/spotify.

Dr. Ryan Hanning is back, this time not as a guest but as a regular contributor. For those who missed him in season two, he's a husband to one, father to nine, brilliant scholar, and humble homesteader. Today, he and Jimmy talk about how true happiness is found in building your life around essentials not preferences. This becomes particularly true as they reflect on the joy of belonging to a particular place (in Ryan's case, his homestead outside of Nashville, TN).
